This is an explanation of the problem (which is now fixed) and not an SRS
posting as such. Some may therefore wish to delete this message now.
It was not a problem with UK->non-UK distribution. The EBI's main route
for news is via the NEWS system at the HGMP. The list bionet.software.srs
did not exist on the HGMP system with obvious consequences. It did
appear on the EBI local system though, and would therefore only have
propagated to end-node sites supplied by the EBI. We've had fun
tracking this down. Thanks to Jeroen, Geoff Gibbs(EBI) and Dave Hines
(Daresbury) for sorting this out.
